Juventus outcast Mario Mandzukic has reportedly chosen Manchester United and could move in December to start preparing for life in the Premier League.
The Croatian’s future could be resolved with a €10m transfer to Old Trafford in January, even if Calciomercato.com reports that Fabio Paratici would be willing to listen to offers from Tottenham and West Ham whilst in London during the international break.
Mandzukic was never in Maurizio Sarri’s plans and has been left out of the squad since the former Napoli man took the job in Turin.
With Juventus currently in need of €5.5m to avoid a capital loss on the player, they are still holding out for €10m, a reduction on last summer’s €15m asking price.
Tuttosport claim he has already chosen a move to Manchester United, seeing this as the best place for an immediate return to first-team football during the second half of the season.
It is now suggested he would like to be training with the Red Devils already in December, which would give him time to settle in at Old Trafford.
He is no stranger to Manchester, of course, having won the Premier League title with Manchester City.
Mandzukic played 25 matches in Serie A for Juventus last season, scoring nine goals in the League.
